Grandemare Bed by Flexform
Designer – Antonio Citterio
GRANDEMARE stands out for it large single seat, a block that rests on a platform in wood and metal, covered in cowhide, taking on unique body and a definite, precise profile. GRANDEMARE is a family of sofas for infinite combinations. Ample, generous, like a great sea, they enter the living area in a wide range of different configurations.
The low back welcomes a series of small and large cushions in soft down, with optional contrasting grosgrain finish to add dynamism to the monolithic presence of the deep seat. Grandemare also comes in a bed version that replicates the proportions and aesthetic concept of the sofa.
